Video Game: Out of Order
If out of chaos comes order, what comes Out of Order?

Ever woken up in the middle of the night to find you've been kidnapped... and so's your bedroom? Ever had to fend for yourself in the face of strangely hypnotic music, alien doctors, talking computers a-plenty and half-finished bathrooms? Ever found something unpleasant in a burger?

If so,
Out Of Order should play like any other day in your life.

Otherwise, it's an experience not to be missed.

— The front page of the official website.

Out of Order is a freeware Adventure Game that follows a day in the life of Hurford Schlitzing, a fairly unremarkable young British man who lives with his mother. He wakes up in the middle of a thunderstorm, gets himself a bite to eat, lets the cats out and goes back to bed.

The End.

Out of Order is a freeware Adventure Game that follows a day in the life of Hurford Schlitzing, a fairly unremarkable young British man who lives with his mother. He wakes up in the middle of a thunderstorm, only to find that his entire bedroom has been kidnapped... and relocated to 'The Town'. As he explores to find out what the heck is going on, some uncomfortable, terrifying, and just plain weird truths come to light.

The game can be downloaded here.


This game provides examples of:
  • Chekhov's Boomerang: Hurford's Three Frank Harlons CD.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: The green alien near the restaurant is one of the roles Panel sometimes assumes.
  • Deadpan Snarker: You'd think the main character is being paid to do this.
  • Guide Dang It: Some of the puzzles reach or nearly reach this point. The clues are all there, but a lot of them are presented in ways that make them seem unimportant or irrelevant.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: So many that there's even a sound effect to acknowledge them.
    • Hurford: (after stealing a battery) What's a little vandalism between neighbors? Or should I say, assault and battery? *ba-dum-ching!*
  • No Fourth Wall: Several examples, particularly "A screwdriver? I was hoping we could go an entire adventure game without one of these."
  • Older Than They Look: Sylvia, your human neighboor looks like a young woman. She's 114/115.
  • Riddle Me This: Sort of. There's a computer you have to guess the password to, and it's written down in a way only the computer's owner, a riddle-lover, can understand.
  • Subliminal Seduction: A major plot point is backwards messages in songs acting as mind control. Ironically the main character overcomes it by using another song that does the same thing but for the opposite effect.
  • The Unpronouncable: The Tn you talk to at the end, L'LL'L'LLL-LL'L-LLLL KORH'Y'UML-PO'TNK-C'VEZG
  • Tomato in the Mirror: Like you wouldn't believe.
